Penn State Football beats Purdue in thrilling fashion, and Twitter erupts

Penn State Football survived.

The Nittany Lions, in a contest that featured eight lead changes, managed to pull off the last of the night, thanks in part to dominant defense in the fourth quarter and a thrilling game-winning drive led by quarterback Sean Clifford

Amid a hostile atmosphere, in a game of wild emotional and momentum swings, Penn State Football knocked off the Purdue Boilermakers 35-31, improving to 1-0 on the young season. 

Penn State would create one of those moments that will stick with a team — and a fan base, with a dramatic come-from-behind win over Purdue to start the season

Credit to Clifford, he made the drive #PennState had to have but MAN! @BoilerFootball gave this one away.

Penalties and poor tackling in the 1st half and Brohm REFUSING to call any ones. It's 3rd and 30! Get the clock moving!

Sean Clifford is such a college football quarterback. Not terrible. Not elite. Frustrating for his fan base, but he also has so many moments like that drive.
